Screaming on the Inside

Juan Williams and NPR

Posted by madjillmom on October 21, 2010

NPR has fired Juan Williams for saying what most of us would say.  He basically said that he feels anxiety if he is on a plane with identifiable muslims (those in traditional dress).  CAIR, the most active “Muslims are Victims” group got into the mix and told NPR that Juan should be punished for what he said on The O’Reilly Factor. I think the left leaning NPR is caving to the pressure from Muslim groups who have been known to threaten anyone who says something against Islam or Muslims.  We wouldn’t want a bomb to be set off in the lobby of NPR.  I also think that the huge contribution from George Soros to hire more journalists to combat Fox is part of the mix here.

I really got my fixation on politics from listening to NPR.  This was well over 20 years ago and I could see it as a left biased entity.  NPR can now join MSNBC in the category of “totally in the pocket of the liberal left”.

I watch Juan Williams on Fox day after day.  I yell at him sometimes.  He has gotten the shaft on this deal.  I hope he sues NPR.  They have let other news analysts say outrageous things about conservatives for years with no dismissals.
